It's A Guy Thing & A Gorjuss Girl - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
Today I have two cards to share as I have at last finished my DT card from before Christmas which I didn't get finished due to being ill, one is girlie and one features poor neglected little Edwin.
First up .......

 It's Wednesday which means ..........
& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
 My lovely teamies and I are featuring
products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge.
Today's card features a cute Magnolia Edwin with Derby Hat stamp from the Little London Collection along with some Tim Holtz goodies. Poor little Edwin gets overlooked by me all the time and it's not that I don't like him, I just get drawn to the girlie cards, the flowers are to blame lol. 
 The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E43, E42, E40, clothes - W6, W4, W2 / C3, C1, C00, shoes - C7, C5, C3, cane - N5, N3. N1
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes, Crafting From The Heart - anything goes, Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia - anything goes, Stempelsonnen - anything goes,
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp
 I couldn't join my lovely teamies for the last challenge before Christmas as I was too poorly to finish my card but as I said at the beginning of my post I have now finally finished adding the flowers so here it is -
 For this challenge the DT girlies were featuring Do Crafts products on our cards and I used a lovely Gorjuss Girl stamp and some pretty Papermania papers.
I even paper pieced her dress and hair ribbons attempting to save some time as I was desperately trying to finish my card in time for the challenge but failed miserably.

The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E01, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, dress - C3, C1, C00, socks - C1, C0, C00 / boots - B23, B21, B000.
Squirrel - E37, E35, E31, leaves - YG63, YG61, G94, E33, E31,
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Creative Inspirations - anything goes, Crafty Sentiments - Girly, Paper Minutes - Flower Power, Crafts For Eternity - blue tones, Sister Act - anything goes,
That's me finished for today peeps, I'm off to put another jumper on as despite the heating being on I still feel cold and then I'm ready to settle down with a nice cup of coffee ready for an hour or two of relaxing blogging :)
Thanks for stopping by
